Hudson Valley Brewery by Passionfruit Silhouette

Zak S. is drinking a Passionfruit Silhouette by Hudson Valley Brewery at Bar Great Harry

Tart passion fruit notes with a load of citrus pop on the back. Not overly sweet or tart that it pulls away. Silhouette is a great base, and the passion fruit pops.

Tired Hands Brewing Company by Refreshing

Zak S. is drinking a Refreshing by Tired Hands Brewing Company at Other Half Brewing Co.

Really clean and tropical forward IPA. Really clean and tasty IPA. I've been more than impressed with what I've drank. Wish I could be there more.

Modern Times Beer by Crucible of the Spirit Dragon

Zak S. is drinking a Crucible of the Spirit Dragon by Modern Times Beer at Other Half Brewing Co.

Nose has some lime and a bit of dragon fruit. Barrel brings some vanilla, but the funk and clean finish of the palate clean up the pour. Absolutely outlandish.

Sand City Brewing Co by Bourbon Barrel Aged Rebellion (2016)

Zak S. is drinking a Bourbon Barrel Aged Rebellion (2016) by Sand City Brewing Co at Other Half Brewing Co.

Nose isn't as barrel heavy as I expected. The palate is far more muddled with sweetness and aimless barrel character. Incredibly thin and lacks direction.

AleSmith Brewing Company by Double Barrel Speedway Stout (2017)

Zak S. is drinking a Double Barrel Speedway Stout (2017) by AleSmith Brewing Company at Other Half Brewing Co.

The fudge and raw coffee flavor set this apart from any Speedway I've ever had. Not too sweet, but definitely boozey. The Bourbon pops more than the Port. Really well made release.

Holy Mountain Brewing by A Dangerous Meeting

Zak S. is drinking an A Dangerous Meeting by Holy Mountain Brewing at Other Half Brewing Co.

Tastes way closer to a Flanders Oude Bruin. Red wine acidity pops off with a ton of vanilla and some funk. A collab that doesn't seem like it should happen works beautifully... đŸ˜±

Cloudwater Brew Co. by Bourbon Black Forest Stout

Zak S. is drinking a Bourbon Black Forest Stout by Cloudwater Brew Co. at Other Half Brewing Co.

I've somehow found a bottle of bourbon cherry pie. Great cinnamon notes with just a bit of tartness. Drinks clean and easy. Thoroughly impressed with this collab.

The Good Beer Company by Salud

Zak S. is drinking a Salud by The Good Beer Company at Other Half Brewing Co.

Wow, that is a ton of melon and oaky vanilla followed by tart fruit. The yeasty and tanic flavors hit really nice outside the fruity goodness. Absolutely amazing.

Mikkeller Brewing NYC by Beer Geek Parlor

Zak S. is drinking a Beer Geek Parlor by Mikkeller Brewing NYC at Other Half Brewing Co.

The cocoa and a touch of cherry. Whole lot of roasty coffee that doesn't hit with any bitterness. Absolutely stellar iteration of Beer Greek.

Other Half Brewing Co. by 495nm

Zak S. is drinking a 495nm by Other Half Brewing Co. at Other Half Brewing Co.

A bit more on the dry side. Lighter body with a bit of pine. Not my favorite of the recent releases, but pretty nice.

Other Half Brewing Co. by Galaxy + El Dorado

Zak S. is drinking a Galaxy + El Dorado by Other Half Brewing Co. at Other Half Brewing Co.

Definitely drinking green, but there's a ton to dig into. Some nice orange and cantaloupe with a nice hit of peppermint. The dual hop series is really kicking ass.

Other Half Brewing Co. by Simcoe + Idaho7

Zak S. is drinking a Simcoe + Idaho7 by Other Half Brewing Co. at Other Half Brewing Co.

I'm really digging this addition to the dual hop series! A great amount of pine that gets blasted by a combination of pineapple, lychee, blueberry, and passion fruit. I'm a huge fan!

Tired Hands Brewing Company by Control Voltage

Zak S. is drinking a Control Voltage by Tired Hands Brewing Company at Other Half Brewing Co.

This may be one of my favorite high octane IPAs I've ever had. Drinks closer to 7% vs. 12%. The oak gives a little vanilla. Everything after that is straight up mango and passion fruit juice. Holy shit.

Suarez Family Brewery by Young'uns

Zak S. is drinking a Young'uns by Suarez Family Brewery at Other Half Brewing Co.

Always happy to see Suarez on tap in Brooklyn! Light lemon balm and papaya that blend to equal parts malt and peach. Finishes dry and a touch bitter.

Mikkeller Brewing NYC by Oceans of Patience

Zak S. is drinking an Oceans of Patience by Mikkeller Brewing NYC at Other Half Brewing Co.

A nice and light body that fits to style, followed by light grassy and floral hop notes. The yeast character is spot on as well. Gonna be a long night at Other Half!
